Improve how you move!

About the Director

We are all—as part of the human condition—moving and being moved. Studies show that when we see someone perform a movement, we share the experience on a visceral level. When we see movement performed in a context that gives it deeper meaning, we feel its emotional underpinnings.

I am drawn to the dance of everyday living, and I am interested in the hero’s journey of the students I mentor. By teaching them how to use movement and awareness as the means to understand themselves more deeply, I trust that they will find purpose, meaning, and beauty in their actions along the way.
